How big is that in real world terms.


Like how many KM in diameter.

Didn't someone "leak" the plot a while back (probably fake). Did they mention these locations?

Can't really say about the exact dimensions , but if we are guessing , the dimension from left to right is more than 10 km +- 50 :P

Are you talking about the 4chan leak thread? The OP is an Idiot, i must say.
But still ,the leak talked about different tribes not the exact name, an educated guess??

Looks like Skyrim map.

I think it's the shape...but to me has definitely a Skyrim vibe.

I don't think those tribe names in the OP are correct.

Aloy's tribe are called the Nora, I think those are the names of the different regions instead.

Yeah, I think those are regions (or big villages/settlements) as well. I swear someone in one of the trailers also says "welcome to meridian" or something.

Meridian is the only city in the game AFAWK, and from the cinematic trailer it's where the Power-sigil tribe are up to their 'rebuild the warbots' shenanigans. It's also apparent by that point that Aloy has built a pretty big rep getting there..

I read somewhere that somebody compared it to the size of Velen from the Witcher 3. If that is the case, then that is a decent size map. No complaints here.

The Carja, who look to be an Iron Age civilization that venerates the Sun, are a neighboring people to the Nora. This is from incidental dialogue shown in the gameplay previews.

I believe that the region as a whole is called Meridian, but I'm not sure.

The right side of the map looks significantly less open if you can't travel over those mountains or cliff areas. As does that center section. I haven't followed the game to closely but was anything said on that front in regarding to how much freedom you had in moving around?

From the gameplay I've seen I haven't seen anything to suggest you'd be able to travel like that. There looks like there are a number of paths through these areas and maybe those are the only way you can travel through sections like that and you'll just see the cliffs and mountains and not go up them.

That's quite big indeed. But is it big enough for the variety of environment in Horizon?

Velen is big, but there are only two main environment there, which are lush forests and swamps. And they're placed realistically, just perfect for the size of Velen. When we have these so many different environment within the same amount of land in Horizon, it could become unrealistic. Like, you can travel from a lush forest to a snowy area in just several minutes of traveling. But hey, Horizon is not a game that's trying to be realistic anyway. My concern is moot, I guess.

the distance between Aloy and corrupted zone can be reach in around 1 minute with a mount.

That term makes sense when I look at that map. Could still be a decent enough size. I wonder what reactions are going to be for those that don't realize this.

If you renamed those markers and told me it was Skyrims map i would 100% believe you.

As for the size i am curious how open it is, is it instanced parts or one full open world with no loading?

Sorry to disappoint you But thats the term some people are using while trying to downplay the game graphics calling it a "CORRIDOR".
Its an huge open world game , you can scale mountains as well, I hope you are not being serious with that comment.

Or did he mean that this thing being leaked was the "negative" thing with review copies already being sent out? If so, eh. Hopefully, this is all that's leaked since the guide has tons of stuff that could be spoiler-ish even.

I think that's the inspiration for certain locations , but to bring more variety to the environment , they have changed some of the topology.
